I was only in Kelowna for a single afternoon this year, so I only got a few decent pics of the town (sadly no construction updates)

I love this mural!

Great shots! They really highlight the evolution of downtown Kelowna...in that Kelowna is finally achieving a true downtown.

Thanks! Yeah, it has been nice seeing Kelowna discover its urban form and identity over the last decade.

So just out of Kelowna about a 30 minute drive up the lake is this really cool cove in Ellison Park.

You can see some smoke in valley in this image.

Then I made my way up to Silver Star Ski Resort for a couple nights just out of Vernon.

I suspect he would have been privately appalled by such a bloated memorial, but I assume it was OK with his family, so perhaps I'm wrong.

Not to be a complete jackass but this thread has followed a rule of no more than 3 pictures per post for a reason, but we're seeing posts with double and triple that.
